This is a comparison of the plague epidemic that occurred in London with the epidemic in Florence. The focus is on the seventeenth century outbreak. Comparing these two cities, allows us to know what methods were most effective in fighting the disease and what developments were made as result of the plague. While the plague had catastrophic effects, it also resulted in many positive developments.
